Very cool sir. Just listened to most of that 6-4-78 show (which I'd never heard, thnx) - very amped up, manic first set. No prisoners rock 'n roll. The only slow, Jerry-ballad in the whole show is Ship of Fools, and even that has a strident edge; the rest of the show is totally uptempo. Must have been much like what we see in the 4-12-78 Duke show, a sample of which is here...

Did they pour it on like this all thru 78, trying to outdo 77?
